Welcome Class of 2021!
Eighth Grade Orientation was a success! The class of 2021 was welcomed into the high school with a packed agenda. After a brief meet-and-greet activity, students asked questions about High School life to a panel of students and teachers. They participated in a discussion with our School Psychologist, Mrs. Kania and then perused the club fair to find out about and signed up for the exciting activities that we have to offer. Students then attended a class with their upperclassman after which they were escorted to our commons to enjoy a BBQ lunch while listening the the fabulous tunes of the Military Rock Band featuring our own LOLMS, Mr. Hibson. After lunch students were introduced to their Head Class Advisers, Mrs. Fried and Mrs. Trost, and held their first CLASS of 2021 meetings and elections. It was quite an eventful day!
May 15 - 19 was Spirit Week at LOLHS. Here are some more photos of our Wildcat Spirit (twin day and class colors) ... take a look!
Senior Spotlight: Natalie Rugg
On Wednesday, May 24, Natalie Rugg was honored at the 35th Annual Shoreline Writing Contest. Natalie's analysis of "A Woman's Not a Woman till the Pills Wear Off" earned her 2nd place in this category. Additionally, on Friday, Natalie was featured in the Senior Profile section of The Day.

A team of five students from South Windsor High School won the statewide interscholastic competition, one point ahead of the Fairfield Warde team on a tie breaker question on the day’s final event. Lyme—Old Lyme High School, last year’s winner, finished a close third this year. The Lyme—Old Lyme High School team was composed of Sarah Kwon, Ryan McTigue, Hannah Wisner, Natalie Rugg, and Cole Dushin, and their coach was teacher Glenn Elliott.

On Thursday evening students were inducted into Lyme-Old Lyme's Chapter of the National Honor Society. Last years inductees presented this years group by reading a brief biography of each student. It was an impressive ceremony! Congratulations to all newly inducted NHS students!
Rotary Student of the Month: Business
The robotics contest asks students to design and build a robot to compete in a competition that varies in its task each year. For example, this year’s task involved picking up Whiffle balls and shooting them through a target 7’ high. The robot also needed to climb a rope and deliver gear shaped game pieces to a hook on the playing field. Students need to complete the design-and-build process in a tight six- week window. Not only does the robot need to operate by remote control, but it also must be able to work autonomously, that is, under its own control through programming. Laura Lee Wayland, one of the operators and a team engineer at the Championship, said of the recent competition, “Our robot effectively utilized all components in a seamless manner. This allowed us to compete among the best robots in the world”.
The robot is constructed in the high school’s Technology and Engineering lab and includes student teams designing and building various systems, such as drive motors and transmissions or control systems. The process asks students to work together and employ engineering skills to solve complex problems. Students utilize skills such as, computer-aided design, machining, programming, wiring and, of course, teamwork. Students also work with real engineers, machinists, and technicians on the team, learning skills and getting introduced to what these careers can offer. Mr. Goss, one of the teachers that helps mentor the team said, “The program does a great job of immersing students in the engineering process. From design to build to testing, they experience the full process.”
Hayden Hendrik, a senior on the team said, “It was a good experience learning to prototype a part for the robot and then reengineer it to make it better. What I like most about the process is how everyone, including students and mentors, works together to solve a problem”.
